Blessing in Disguise

The other day I heard a song that I haven’t heard for quite a while. It’s performed by my favourite artist, Margaret Becker, and I fell in love with it way back when it was originally released but forgot about it until the other day. Listening to it again I have to wonder how I ever forgot about it in the first place! Seasons of life, I guess, but this song certainly sums up the story of my life over the past couple of years. Is it any wonder that I found myself humming and singing the song at various points throughout today!

Blessing In Disguise

In the deep of the dark, you fell in as the heart
Of your world went down in flames
To a cauldron of pain, seeing no way out

And as you walked through the fire
Losing even desire it was like a dying swan
To look at you then but look at you now

You have found a new lease on life
A stronger step and a curious calm on your face
That you wear as if to say

You can rise from the ashes again
You can rise to the morning that breaks in your eyes
For what looked like your heart’s demise
Has turned out to be a blessing in disguise

It has worked for the good, like you heard that it could
But it was hard, so hard to believe
Standing among the ruins of a dream

But from here looking back, you can see clearly that
You can gain from things that you lose
And learn many ways by many means

You have been an inspiration to me
And all the volumes of hope your revival can speak
Will always say to me

You can rise from the ashes again
You can rise to the morning that breaks in your eyes
For what looked like your heart’s demise
Has turned out to be a blessing in disguise
